Poolside Totes

Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.45.10 PMWith snow still on the ground in the Northeast, I am dreaming of a warm weather escape. And, many of you will be taking a Spring Break in the weeks and months to come. Getting your beach wardrobe together is part of the fun and a cute beach/pool bag is something that can make your lounging all the more fun.

These beach bags by Poolside are clever and cheeky and super chic! They have a collection of phrases that you can select from or you can do something completely custom. Especially cute for a warm weather honeymoon, bachelorette party, destination wedding or birthday celebration.

I don’t know about you, but I dread trying on swimsuits…so, I relish selecting something from the comfort of my favorite chiar.Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.45.49 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.46.23 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.46.44 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.48.27 PMScreen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.47.06 PMThese bags may not be my first “beach tote rodeo”, but they sure are fun…..and that’s what you want to have in the sun!

A stylish beach bag is an accessory that you can use from now until Labor Day, meaning now is the time to buy!!

Here are 3 versions that I just love!

For a “goyard” twist on a straw bag, check out the Island Bag by Lindroth Designs in Palm Beach! From $120 – $195, you can choose your monogram and colors.Screen Shot 2016-03-13 at 10.21.37 PMScreen Shot 2016-03-13 at 11.06.56 PMPom poms and tassels more your style? I’m loving these colorful straw bags from JADEtribe. They’ve been spotted on the arms of Elle McPherson and other tastemakers and are $160.Screen Shot 2016-03-13 at 10.53.51 PMScreen Shot 2016-03-13 at 10.56.12 PMScreen Shot 2016-03-13 at 10.54.12 PMHow adorable would this piñata tote by Kayu Design be for Cinco de Mayo?!

Hoping many of you find yourself poolside this month! If not in your own backyard, someplace totally fabulous! Bring on the sun!

Beach Bag Bliss

Who doesn’t love Jenna Lyons, of J. Crew design fame? Well, here’s what Jenna is gathering in her SeaBags Beach Bag, made from recycled sails ~ get your own made with your initials or your favorite number.

Here’s my SeaBags — customized with my favorite number (more on that another time!)

And when Jenna isn’t at the beach, she’s working at her dream job inside the J.Crew kingdom — in case you missed her interview with Oprah about that part of her life, check it out here. And, I dare you not to get a little misty toward the end!

You’ve got great style, Jenna!

Are you updating your beach bag this year….or do you have an old time favorite?
xo, Elizabeth
